Reef Octopus

The Extreme XS skimmers are powered by the high performance Italian Sicce pumps. The skimmer has a gate valve output which allows for more adjustment of the skimmer compared to ball valves and the old wedge pipe. The Sicce PSK1000 pump has an improved star wheel impeller. They are much more advanced with a digital circuit to control start up direction and speed, ultra low noise and huge air draw numbers. The skimmer produces up to 32scfh of air pull using the provided pinwheel impeller. (Air results will vary depending on aquarium setup.) Each Sicce pump draws less than 30watts of electricity. The collection cup has a quick release neck for easy removal for cleaning. It requires 1/2 inch of clearance to remove the cup. The Extreme XS skimmer uses metric plumbing parts.

  • Reef Octopus Extreme XS 8" In Sump Skimmer
  • Dimensions: 15" x 9.4" x 23"
  • Height without the cup is 15.5"
  • Rated up to 200gal.
  • Modified cone neck design designed for easy transition of micro bubbles into cup
  • Powered by Italian made Sicce PSK-1000 pump
  • 2 year warranty on pump

“Reef Octopus XS 200”
2.5

Loud. pump stopped working after 9 months. magnet on impeller for whatever reason started swelling up and then split, lodging itself inside the pump and stopping. Not impressed considering I paid over 300 bucks. I probably will not be a repeat buyer. Would not recommend.

“great with on small issue”
4.0

quiet, efficient, does not take up much space. Only thing I do not like as much is it is not as simple to clean as some of the other models. Takes a little doing to get the cup off and back on. That is really nit picky I know.

Been running for couple days now....I've seen reviews claiming this product can be loud..I'd say it is not. Pulling some real nice junk out. I've owned a ASM g2 skimmer and this Diablo is far better....love it!

This skimmer is great. I opened it up, put it together and got going. Once I figured out that you want the foam just to the top before it spills over, I sat back and waited.

“great skimmer”
5.0

This is my 3rd Reef Octopus skimmer and once again very pleased. It's big but with a small footprint and fit into my sump nicely. I did not have the noise issue that other buyers had and it's already producing! It's also easy to adjust the water level with the gate valve.
